JAWLINE gives us a glimpse into the life of an influencer – a life where it’s often hard to tell the difference between the seller and the product. Austyn Tester is an up-and-coming influencer from a smalltown in Tennessee, struggling to make an impact online. We’re also introduced to Michael Weist, a young Los Angeles-based entrepreneur who specializes in managing social media stars. Juxtaposing rural Tennessee with Hollywood, the film documents an existence that bears little resemblance to the simple and careless lifestyle which the influencers promote.
